Cioccolato e Caramello Gelato Affogato


Afogato.jpgWhat a big name for such a simple decadent treat! Serve affogato as a dinner aperitif—one won’t spoil your appetite. Or as an after dinner treat in place of dessert.Anytime you wish to experience the harmonious blend of coffee, cream and chocolate.

Let your imagination run wild with the additions: Kahlua, chocolate fudge, sprinkles, Frangelico, caramel sauce…YUM and then some!

INGREDIENTS

1 pint premium vanilla or any flavor of good quality gelato, for the photo I used salted chocolate caramel.

4 shots hot espresso, unsweetened

DIRECTIONS

For each serving, place 2 scoops of ice cream into a glass. Pour the hot espresso over the ice cream and serve immediately before the ice cream melts.AfogatoClose.jpg
